Converted Ship Containers

Here’s seven cool things that people have turned useless shipping containers into.

Small, well-designed and low-cost homes are a key tool for building cities and dense communities where many people and families can live safely and comfortably while sharing resources efficiently. With the green theme growing in popularity across every stretch of the world, more and more people are turning to cargo container homes for green alternatives for office, and even new home, construction.

There are countless numbers of empty, unused shipping containers around the world just sitting on the shipping docks and taking up space.

The result is an extremely high surplus of empty shipping containers that are just waiting to become someone’s home or office.
